Somerset House is hosting a landmark exhibition looking at our inability to switch off from our 24/7 culture.

A series of immersive works explore the causes, consequences and some playfully suggest solutions to unplug and unwind, including one where you can opt to be completely shrouded in a copper blanket, which blocks electro-magnetic signals.

Other highlights include 6 months without, where artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö lived for 6 months with internet access, Tatsuo Miyajima’s meditative isolation chamber Life Palace (tea room), Hyphen Labs’ new photo booth on contagious yawning, a live data visualisation of insomnia worldwide from Tekja, Finnish artist Pilvi Takala’s intervention at Second Home as a ‘wellness consultant’ in her film The Stroker, and the original diary room chair from Big Brother.

Tickets from £14. More info on the Somerset House website.
